Biography

Johnny Cage is one of the most famous characters in Mortal Kombat. He appeared in the MK universe back in 1992. The action movie actor Jean-Claude Van Damme was a prototype for Johnny. Like him, Cage is an actor. At first, he views the Mortal Kombat tournament as a joke. Even after 2 victories against the emperor's minions from Outworld, he still does not take the situation seriously. However, Raiden manages to convince him to defend Earth.

Many people remember his spectacular disappearance right from the set. He fights in the same squad with his wife and daughter. Like many of the Earth's defenders, he came under a deadly attack but was brought back to life. Johnny Cage took part in the Battle of the Pyramid of Argus. He was rescued by his daughter Cassie, who beat him off in a showdown against Shinnok.

First Appearance: Mortal Kombat I, 1992
